Last night I came home from band camp. It had been a great day. I had been put in the White Band, which is the second band, above Blue and below Red. I placed 6th chair out of 17. I felt good. That was until I opened my inbox. Two emails from TAP. Both said that it was the end. And my life shattered. For the past year I relied on you guys to be my support, if it was people I didn’t know I felt that I could spill my deepest secrets. Even though there are people I know here, none of them become attached to TAP like I did. I’m the last of that original class. But this year has been fantastic. You guys are like my family. I’m debating taking my profile down, what’s the point of having it? But I want to keep it to remind future generations that if you look you can find hope and you can succeed.
Thank you all for being such an important group of people to me. I really appreciate you, and like my eighth grade class, my band, you are my family.
I love you.
